    Cool. I never saw that one. It looks like an airbrushed image. Nice tutorial.

        I would be interesting to see what you come up with. Something like this would be interesting for a challenge.

          Bike tutorial(my try)

          From Scott Andersons' bike tutorial
          www.Concept DesignForum.com

          My try in Photoimpact v6

          Some steps I used

          I made most of my shapes in 3d mode

          Wheels...An inner and outer 3D circle
          Spokes...A rectangular 3d shape ....aligned
          top edge tangent to inner circle ...path edit
          tool flared end into outer ring ...duplicated
          2 x...aligned 120 degrees apart...blurred flares
          into outer ring.Merged as single object.

          Tires... 3d black circles ...to fit wheels.

          Brake discs...inner and outer rings... 2 d shapes
          a rect...2d shpe and path edit connecting the two rings
          duplicated 35x and aligned each at 10 degrees...merged
          duplcated this and reduced the size for the rear wheel desk.

          Created some transparency shapes for highlights
          on body and wheel spokes

          Touched up with paint in some areas

          Created a gradient bg.

          Added a shadow

          Had to guess
          on highlights... since
          I changed the light source

          It took about 10-12 hrs (what with all the screw ups I made)

              Incredible Tom! I'm a little surprised I didn't hear the trumpets blowing when that came up.

                lol DJ Great work Tom, I looked at it and considered it, but somehow never got the bottle, perhaps if I have time, seeing your wonderful results, I will have a go

                  Thanks for looking and kind remarks...
                  DJ... no need to feel like that .....I've seen what you can do...
                  Ed ... Could have sent a trumpet wav file
                  never thought of it

                    PI has 3D, didn't know that. Very nice, if you can do that, you can do almost any illistration, a car, house, toaster.
                    Cool. I think I may have PI but don't use it.

                      Fugitive
                      PI is not a 3d RENDERING program which I think you have in mind.
                      It' has a draw in object mode 2d and 3 d...for general shapes ...circles..rectangles...squares etc....and shapes you can make with a path tool....these shapes in 2d are flat looking....those in 3d have ability to have a border and the border is what gives it a 3 d look.

                        I would be interested in seeing some more of your PI work, as I'm always looking for new things, even if there isn't enough hour per day to do it all.
